Spelling Bee

During this term year 7 have been practising their spelling strategies to take part in the spelling bee competition. They have spent time during registration to work on improving their spellings and extending their vocabulary. This has involved ‘knock out stages’ whereby each week pupils took part in a spelling test.

The 12 finalists were:

T – Amy Fitzpatrick & Chidimma Anyakora

H – Hamish Carr & Luca Muccio

O – Adam Carter & Archie Ashton

M – Izabelle Cody – Ashall & Jonathan Gilhome

A – Fawaz Abidoye & Anthony McLaughlin 

S – Kaya Attmere & Anna Walker

This is an amazing achievement. All of year 7 participated in the spelling bee competition held on 13/12/16. All pupils showed their enthusiasm by cheering on their form representatives and by behaving in positive manner supporting each other.

Well done to all of year 7 for taking part in a great competition.

Big congratulations to our runner up Anna Walker from 7S and to Archie Ashton from 7O for becoming St. Thomas More’s 2017 spelling bee champion!
